First time in a few weeks that's a board has inspired me to get an shape something!
Love the outline and the red with the inlay is just fantastic. Also I'm a big fan of the wide point back, you've done a subtle take in this which looks magic, and I bet she will shread!
I recenetly sold a similar shape with with Central mid point which was a ripper. Care to share rocker numbers?
Wow, thanks for the kind words!
surf finally came up and the wife loved it. Was perfect for her. Easy to paddle, no tendency to Pearl, stable etc...
The wife gets credit for the color. She does the color mixing for me and then I glass - her eye is way better at matching colors.
I too love outline. Again, have to thank Bill for helping with that. Have never done a wide point back and absolutely love it.
Rocker - 4"NR / 3"TR. started with an 8'4SP.
It's always cool when a plan comes together.
Another variation on the rocker is what Hilbers does with his Hot Generation and variants. There 's a vid on Youtube showing him taking 10" off the tail of an 8-9Y in order to get to his length. This moves the apex of the blank's rocker back closer to the wide point, and also reduces the end point of the tail rocker to about 2" or so. He retains a 4" nose rocker, though. The reduced tail rocker will change the ride but it will also make the drops more tricky.
